Deciphering the truth in a culture of false.

And Justice for All

Have you ever thought about the significance of making people swear on the Bible when they take an oath of office or testify in a court of law?  If it’s not the whole truth, it’s not the truth.  That’s why there is still one place we say that, in court.  So help us, God.  So, help you, Casey Anthony.   I mean, we all know most guilty people get up on the stand and say whatever it takes to keep themselves out of prison, especially those with a history of pathological lying.  Who can blame them?  If there was ever a time to use their Olympic level training in lying, it would be when they accidentally or not accidentally killed their child.  But here’s the rub.  They set up the tradition of being under oath to God during the testimony of a witness for a reason.  It was not to intimidate the judged, for surely they knew not all criminals would believe in God, it was to insure final
justice just in case the human fallibility factor caused an incorrect verdict.

The oath itself is like a call to God to make him officially a witness to the testimony.   When you swear on a Bible, you are officially saying to God you are not lying.  When most people believed in God, this oath was enough to make a jury or judge believe a person. Not so anymore,
right.  I’m here to remind you, all of you who have great hate in your heart for Casey Anthony, for all of you who wish you could take justice into your own hands, if you truly believe in God, let your heart not throw up.  You should know she will be tried again when she dies by someone who knows how to dispense justice. There are certain sins that will not be forgiven.  Among those few sins, I believe, one is when you testify to the truth in front of your peers in regards to a crime against humanity.  Of course, I have no proof.  Just like at the end of “Oh God, You Devil” there was no evidence that God was there in the courtroom, but everyone knew the truth.  It was up to each individual to decide for themselves what they saw/heard.  (Kind of like what a jury is supposed to do.)

I submit to you that you can have faith whenever our justice system fails us like we think it did on Tuesday.  Those of us who commit the
unforgivable sin of lying to God directly in front of our fellow humans, especially after having beyond a reasonable doubt something to do with killing one of them, will go to hell in a hand basket.  I don’t wish that on anyone; not even Miss Anthony.  But that’s the beauty of having faith.  I don’t have to dispense justice in this case.  It’s not my job.  You might say a Christian believes in forgiveness for everyone.  This is true, but it is not necessarily the belief of God.  Those who want forgiveness and believe, get forgiveness.  Most of these unforgivable crimes against humanity are not done by people who would ever think to ask forgiveness from God because they do not believe in anyone but themselves, so it works out.  Broken souls will go where broken souls belong…eventually.  Whether the jury can detect the truth and do justice or not for the wronged in the courtroom becomes secondary.  Once that sworn oath is taken, the believers know that God is being contracted to judge that oath taker and that really, it is the only justice that matters in the end.

The truth is …the government lies, the left lies, and the right lies.  Of, course.  We knew that. The only truth you need to worry about is that you are stuck in the middle and it’s your job to decipher what is right and what is wrong for you.  You shouldn’t need anyone to tell you what is right and what is wrong.  You need to be able to do it for yourself in an honestly valid manner.  You need to take every opportunity and every right that you have to decipher this truth for yourself.

In this country you have the freedom to choose or not to choose.  We can choose not to buy things like books and movies from murderers.  We
have the right to listen to our instincts instead of lawyers.  It is time to say goodbye to mistrust and misguided trust and say hello to a faith in our conservative traditions and logic we already have hopefully permanently interwoven into the major foundations of this great country.

Pseudos lesson: The Pseudos that is being passed on to the population is that there is no judgment day.  There will never be a time when they will be held responsible for the things they get away with on this earth.  Whatever you can get away with is now serving as the moral limit because that is what the Pseudos message is effectively conveying to people who want, more than anything, to get away with as much sin and avoid as much pain as humanly possible.

  1. As much as I sometimes wish for “instant gratification” meaning that, in my lifetime, I will see justice done and someone “will get what’s coming to them,” I know that they will eventually face God and judgment day. As my husband reminds me often, “no one gets out for free.” In my work as a prosecutor in child abuse cases, I’ve seen horrific things done to children but remind myself what Jesus said about hurting little ones. “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.” -Mark 9:42 I firmly believe Casey Anthony will eventually be punished for her actions.

    I really like your take on the oath and a higher justice. One thing I should point out is the change in the oath. Most jurisdictions now use a generic ” do you swear or affirm to tell the truth”, that change was as a result of suits by the ACLU and others who are offended by the word GOD!
    I like to say, “yeah tell it to St. Peter when you’re at the Pearly Gates”, I’m sure he’ll understand that using GOD was upsetting to you. I believe that there will be a “lot of splaining to do”
